This week, I laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in Arlington National Cemetery to honor our service members, veterans, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. It was an experience I'll never forget.
Since the founding of our nation, our military has remained ever ready to defend our freedoms. With Veterans Day quickly approaching, I want to again thank all those who have put their lives in harm's way to protect our families and our nation. On this day, let us recommit to ensuring that our nation's commitment to our veterans continues after their tour of duty ends.
